Pala Jam went down in San Diego at the beautiful Pala Casino Spa & Resort. Sold out show of appreciation of classic soul and funk music with three of music’s venerable women in music, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Jody Watley and The SOS Band fronted by original lead Mary Davis. Terrific energy from the crowd for each artist- a beautiful and spirited evening of funky music and a lot of soul.

My band and squad SRL, a evolving into a collective of musicians, dancers, choreographers and performers joining me for one hell of a show!

Monday Wattage Inspiration. Love Yourself.

Wise inspirational words from Steve Maraboli that I thought I’d share.

Soundcheck vibes “The Passion” in Philly last Saturday – Make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel so you don’t miss uploads!

 

Over on Instagram, really loved the comments in this post..hearing what Jody Watley Music was on playlists..originated by a fan who shared what he was listening to from 4 of of my albums. If you stopped at the first two and most commercial albums..you really are missing a lot of great music. Mix it up. Though streaming sucks for artists – I still recommend them for listening and checking out music you may have missed..and then go buy (download) to your collections. Read some of the comments to check out the diverse range..I love it when the deep cuts are mentioned..that’s a real music appreciator for any artist to go beyond the radio.
